    Were those the old days? I remember waiting a couple of days for our local BBS to sync with FidoNet to read responses to your post, which was also moderated (mostly to synchronize responses from multiple sources).

    No wonder I didn't recall. I didn't even post in that tread!

    Ah, well I remember calling up BBS's via 300 baud modem - the kind you put the phone receiver into.
    I was an early user of Compuserve.
    Am I old enough yet?

    The difference with Usenet was, there were ENOUGH posts in a short time period that moderation actually was valuable.
    Unlike the very early days of THIS forum, where you might wait a day before anyone even answered you.

It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster

    Had one of those too, but could almost never use it as I couldn't justify a second phone line and couldn't keep the wife from picking up the phone every 10 minutes to "see if I was done yet". Yep honey, I'm apparently done now. Thank you.
